A black-and-white stereoscopic view of a man fishing. The man appears to be either Asian or black. He wears a light shirt and dark jacket, both with wide sleeves, medium-light pants, and dark shoes. Half his head is either shaved or balding; the dark straight hair on the back half may be held back by some sort of headband. The man squats on a driftwood log at the edge of the placid river water. He holds a wood or bamboo pole out at a 90-degree angle to his body. On the log in front of him are twigs strung with small fish and weighed down with another piece of driftwood. At the very left edge of the left-side photograph can be seen part of a wooden bucket. Along the upper bank of the river to his left runs a line of telephone or telegraph poles. Beyond him stretches the river and forested hills.
